Ottawa, Ontario
Nikon D700
Nikkor AF-S 16-35mm f/4G ED VR

I've seen a few reviewers sneer at the vibration reduction feature on this lens, stating they don't think it's necessary on an ultra-wide. I must disagree. These shots were handheld at speeds as low as 1/4 second and are extremely sharp. Even with the barrel distortion that this lens has on its wide end, it's become just about my favorite of my arsenal. The D700 is simply amazing at high ISO; combine that with VR and you're set for some sweet low-light photography.

I have to put a plug in for the new Photoshop CS5 as well... the RAW converter is simply extraordinary, and the Content Aware Fill, while not magic, is amazing. It's worth the couple hundred bucks to upgrade - no second thoughts.

This is better than my actual eyesight. Weird. If I could see this good at night I would have superheo powers as well!
